SWELL PHOTO COLLECTION

 Since Sector 9 was founded by surfers in Ja Jolla, California (you should know this by now), it’s only fitting that our boards would be heavily surf-inspired throughout the years. This year’s Swell Photo Collection is no different. For this year’s offering, we’ve headed South… way South... to feature photographer Hayden Richards a.k.a. Rich Richards a.k.a. SA Rips. Hailing from South Australia, his photography is stark contrast to the bright, colorful, sun-soaked barrels you’re probably accustomed to seeing don our decks. The moody, serene and often dark images of barren stretches and isolated landscapes are punctuated by ocean views and perfect barrels. We’ve chosen to compliment the subtlety of his images with flat, matte bottom graphics on some surf-inspired shapes like the Jammer and Unagi, as well as an all-around favorite in the Meridian. We’re super stoked to show off his incredible images with this collection that’ll have you transported to the other side in search of ocean perfection.
